always clear if you're truly on a date or just hanging out with a group. >> here's the question, is this the end of courtship? here to help us understand it all is sex and relationship therapist ian kerner. along with some people on the dating scene. debra goldstein, 31-year-old, author of flirtexting, and 2012 cosmo bachelor of the year from new orleans, we should point out, ryan. >> hey, guys. >> hey. >> really "new york times" article about whether -- >> i found it depressing. >> me too. it talks about the end of courtship when a guy would see you and court you and call you. >> actually call you. >> and date. >> i remember being that guy, and i feel like ryan's generation has it a little bit too easy. i remember it was up to the guy. we would have to be the one to call the woman, and you would have to use a phone, and you would dial your number, and then your heart would beat. you know? it somebody going to answer? am i going to get an answering machine? >> if they answer, what do you
2:20 am
do? >> you could hang up because there wasn't caller id. >> he could just text, hey, what's happening? >> times have changed. >> tell us what you guys think. >> when we wrote "flirtexting, and i wrote it with my best friend. we actually grew up dating in your day and age where we did wait for the phone call, and then we noticed guys were texting us and it transitioned, and we thought this isn't slowing down. it's happening. how do we change our game to what's happening? what i discovered is it's really -- it's really -- what's important is sort of teaching somebody how to treat you. if you want him to call you, if you want him to take you seriously and to court you, then you have to create your text messages in a way that puts that out. >> guys are stupid. we don't get that. you know, some guys are going to text regardless. they'll even text just one word. hey. what are you doing? >> ryan, if you want to ask a girl out, okay, you see a girl and think she's cute, how do you do it? i mean, do you text her?
2:21 am
do you say meet us with a group of friends? how do you do it? >> no, i'm not a fan of this hang out dating thing. i think because i want to screen the girl before i go and introduce her to my friends. i think i -- >> what does that mean? how do you screen the girl? >> i like the one-on-one, the face-to-face kind of -- >> you want to physically meet her? >> oh, yeah. absolutely. >> he's a southern gentleman. >> i'm a southern gentleman. raised by great parents. you know, that's what i was taught to do. texting versus phone calls, it depends on what kind of relationship you have with them preexisting. say i knew them beforehand, i would probably give them a call, but if we just kind of met, you know, through a friend or something, maybe a text, you know, to spur it on, and then a call to confirm. >> let's talk about the scenario and the times. guys texting this girl, and he text her about having a date. clearly uses the word date. she doesn't hear from him all day. 10:30 at night, hello, he texts her and says let's go out with my buddies. >> come over.
2:22 am
>> would you go? >> here's how i feel about that. i think that what's important for the girl to understand if she does go what that's going to set her up for. i've been the girl who says, okay, yeah, sure, i'll go, but i understand what that means. this means that he's not going to put me in the category of i'm going to take her home to meet mom. she's going to be my girlfriend. if i wanted to be his girlfriend, then i wouldn't respond to his text message. i would give him the benefit of the doubt, allow him the opportunity to text me the next day during the daylight, and i would respond back quickly so that he knows this is how i like to be treated, and this is how i want you to set up our relationship. >> ian, what is happening? is this eroding, like, relationships because there's less contact and more group stuff? >> i think social media is putting too much information out there. it's kind of stripping courtship of some of the mystery, and i think all of this texting, social media, internet, it's kind of like a faucet that is always on, and you just have to decide when you're going to turn it off.

i think you have to be able to step outside of the group, and i actually have heard from a lot of people who are going back to phones. they're saying they're going even back to e-mail. >> are you? >> that's going -- >> it makes them stand out from the crowd. if a guy actually calls, he makes an impression. >> exactly. >> i notice that recently when guys ask for my number, i'll give them my e-mail because you're going to be able to actually communicate more through e-mail than you would through a text. >> i haven't got that one yet. >> it allows you to get to know somebody a little bit more because you're not just texting, hey, what are you doing? >> what has been the advantage of all this? is there any? >> well, you know, there was an interesting study that said that you kind of have to go on ten first dates before you really meet somebody who is worth a second date, and i think in an age of social media, in an age of internet dating, maybe it is more of a numbers game, and it's easier to have those ten first dates. >> you just have to realize back then it was sex, drugs, and rock

the fast and easy tips. >> "in style" beauty editor went backstage at fashion shows to get some of the behind the scenes secrets from the pros. >> hey. how are you? >> hi. >> so you got to see the inner workings. what kind of things did you learn? >> well, i think that the biggest take-away is just how incredibly fast they operate. you know, everything is done in a matter of minutes. they have so many models to get through there, make them look amazing. it's like extreme makeup and hair. >> sure. lips are one of the first things you notice when you look at someone. >> full lips. >> you have some tips for that, huh? >> one of the common mistakes that women make is using a dark lip liner to reshape their lips. one of the great tips we saw backstage at prada they used a white pencil. >> where? >> right on the cupid's bow. you highlight the shape of the lip. it makes them subtly look fuller, and it's more natural than using a dark pencil. >> white? >> i couldn't use a white.
2:32 am
>> she doesn't have -- >> before and after. look at the difference. >> oh, my god. >> it really does look beautiful. >> very easy to do. >> very easy, and in real life you can blend it to make it look more natural. on the runway it's more dramatic. >> pale nails are in right now. they tend to crack and chip. ? crack and chip. they are also sometimes difficult to apply. especially if it's an opaque nude, which is what we've been seeing a lot on the runways. we found this great tip at donna karen. the manicurist applied a matte top coat in between the shades of color. you know, usually you just put it on as a base. this was in between. this helps it go on very smooth so you don't get that streakiness. >> that's clever and smart. what's catherine doing over here? what's happening? >> well, this was a trick that tom pescoe did at marnie. it's for cheeks. he said he learned this trick from his mom, which is just using a few dabs of lipstick -- >> on your cheeks.
2:33 am
>> what's great about this is it's something any woman can do. you're going out on the town, and if you just want to carry one product, use this on your lips, your cheeks. super fast. >> i'm going to ask this. probably a dumb question. do you use the same color that you use on your lips? >> yes, yes. >> you do. >> sometimes you can use it on your lids too. >> all over. >> you would do plum, plum, plum? >> you could. plum. just obviously lighter on the eyes. >> okay. >> now for fly-away hair you have a cool, interesting trick. >> they often do the hair first backstage. so what they'll do is keep it off the face while they're doing the makeup by clipping it in. exactly. what this does is it -- my hands are very slippery. it keeps the hair off the face, so you don't get a dent from the metal. >> oh. >> normally if you are pulling your hair back or putting it in a ponytail, you would get a dent. this is also a great trick for women to use at home if you are doing your makeup. don't want to ruin your hair. keep it out of your face.
2:34 am
>> tools of the trade that you found. this i love. we have one of these. >> this has been a staple backstage for a long time. what's great about it, you can see, it's obviously this egg shape, which is great for getting into all the nooks and crannies in your face. >> they're fantastic on your face. they're great. >> we love that it's now black, so it's not quite -- >> the other thing that makeup artists will often do is take dozens of lipsticks and put them in cases and that way they can mix and match different shades and also have all of their lipstick there. another one that's great for women if they're traveling, you don't have to stick with the lipstick. you can put any makeup in there. throw it in your evening bag. it's an easy way. >> sometimes at the very end you're sticking your pinky in and it's so much smarter. what do we have here? >> this, as i said, it's all about speed backstage. one of the things that we found, very funny, but remarkably effective is an old school fan when they're trying to dry the model's hands. >> that's what they would use? >> they will sit there with a fan. it's also a great trick if are
